One day, well-known actress Behnaz Jafari receives a painfully cruel video from a girl whose parents have forbidden her to study acting. Behnaz immediately cancels the shoot she is working on and, accompanied by director Jafar Panahi, heads off to the locations where the video was made. Recipient of Best Screenplay at this year’s Cannes festival, the film offers up a reflection on artistic freedom and acting, and on traditions that can enrich and restrict at the very same time.


Synopsis

One day, film and TV star Behnaz Jafari receives a desperate video from a girl whose parents have forbidden her from studying acting. Behnaz immediately cancels the shoot she is working on and, accompanied by director Jafar Panahi, heads off to the locations where the video was made. 3 Faces, which took Best Screenplay at this year’s festival in Cannes, deftly combines fiction and reality. The two protagonists portray themselves in a sophisticated, subtly humorous meditation on freedom, art and respect for actresses and women in general. The film’s title symbolically brings together three generations of actresses: icon of Iranian cinema Shahrzad, the aforementioned Behnaz Jafari and the young, as-yet unknown Marziyeh Rezaei.
